Better healthcare for Canberra

Better healthcare for Canberra Main Image

ACT Labor is committed to delivering better healthcare when you need it across Canberra.

From the innovative nurse-led Walk-in Centres that Canberrans have embraced, to a specialist women and children’s hospital, regional cancer centre and rehabilitation hospital, we’ve been building a health system that provides better care, closer to home for all Canberrans.

ACT Labor is delivering an additional 400 front line health workers for the ACT, providing better health services for our growing city and region.

ACT Labor delivered Canberra’s Walk-in Centres

We are building a network of Walk-in Centres, providing free healthcare for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses for Canberrans.

We know Canberrans love nurse led Walk-in Centres because they provide great care, close to home, led by our skilled nurses – every day of the year with no appointment needed.

ACT Labor saw the need for regionalised care because we plan for how our city grows.

Walk-in Centres are available across all Canberra regions in Belconnen, Tuggeranong, Gungahlin, Weston Creek and the Inner North.

More than 60,000 Canberrans a year visit our Walk-in Centres, taking a significant load off other parts of the healthcare system.

A better Canberra Hospital

We’re investing in the biggest expansion of healthcare since the ACT Government was formed – through a major upgrade of the Canberra Hospital.

The project is delivering a state-of-the-art emergency, surgical and critical healthcare facility on the Canberra Hospital campus.

The new facility ensures the healthcare needs of our growing and ageing community are met today, and into the future.
